Durfort-Vivens 2022


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 97.0

The historic Château Durfort-Vivens has produced wine for generations, and has been under the leadership of the Lurton family since 1961. Its 55-hectare vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.70%), Merlot (c.24%) and Cabernet Franc (c.6%) on a terroir of gravelly soils and limestone. The wine’s classic cassis and blackcurrant character comes from the dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon, and is complete with elegant tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in amphora, whilst the final blend matures in 40% new French oak barrels. Certified biodynamic since 2016, Durfort-Vivens is respected for producing high-quality, low-intervention wines.



James Suckling

The quality of the tannins are pure velvet yet so, so fine in texture. Medium to full body with a weightless presence and beautiful heart. Rose stem and other flowers. 84% cabernet sauvignon and 16% merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification.

Jane Anson

Great balance, this has the spice and exoticism of the vintage, with pomegranate, cardamom and turmeric spice, along with creamy cappuccino and damson fruits. Feels effortless and balanced, step by step building in juice, enjoyment and pleasure. Its ripe and concentrated, with the structure for long ageing. 30hl/h. Owned by Gonzague Lurton, owner also of Acaibo in Sonoma, which has had its own challenges in terms of extreme temperatures. 70% new oak, 30% amphora for ageing. Harvest from September 1 to October 12, got to be one of the longest in terms of red grapes picking in the vintage.
